The late John Hinds stole the show at SMACC Chicago with his honest and irreverent insights into his personal experience of performing a resuscitative thoracotomy and the sequelae that followed.
The RAGE team sorely misses John’s wisdom and wit, this is how we will remember him – the consummate resuscitationist.
John’s key learning points are words to live by:
- Prepare. Know the evidence.
- Make your intentions honourable.
- Do it.
- Seek out the skeptics.
- Never allow a wanker to bring you down.
Sign this petition to support John’s passion, the improvement of trauma care in Northern Ireland.
The RAGE team, the SMACC family, #FOAMed, and the world of critical care has lost one of its smartest, funniest, bravest and most inspirational brethren.
We are lost for words.
Our thoughts are with John’s family.
John we love you, we miss you.
